I am very glad to know that this works for you.

Yes, the above mappings are what I use now in the exporter.
BEGIN_CENTER is handled using <informaltable>.

Have you tried something like the following?

#+DOCBOOK: <para><emphasis>One line</emphasis> written in DocBook</para>

  <para>You should know what you are doing when quoting DocBook XML code
  in your Org file.  Invalid DocBook XML file may be generated by
  DocBook exporter if you are not careful!</para>

Because we already have #+BEGIN_DOCBOOK ... #+END_DOCBOOK, there is no
point to support many other blocks like #+begin_warning
... #+end_warning (for the above example) etc., which can really pollute
Org-mode files.

I can add a little more comments in org-docbook.el, but ideally we
should add important things to the manual if they are missing.  What
particular information do you want to see in the manual?
